This morning there were 51 Red Knots feeding on Donax clams on North Topsail Beach, Onslow County, NC about 0.9 miles east of the intersection of New River Inlet Road with Hwy 210. Two of these were wearing dark green flags with letters.Interestingly, both were reported from this location on 10 January also (according to bandedbirds.org). One was originally tagged in NJ in May 2016. Tagging info was not given for the second bird.
